http://www.seac.org/tampons has a lot of good information.... "menstruator's health" on the left is what you want, i believe




ooh! *exciting* i just discovered the beauty of flannel!! until a couple hours ago... i was scared to actually use my flannel, for fear of failure (i have, seriously, no money)... but i made the bloodsisters one... liked it alot, but did it wrong the first time (still useable though, thanks to random burst of genius)...  but flannel!!! oh man... i can't wait to use this one!

*happy dances*

i finally did it!!

*woot*




i only made one and i'm using it already! (hehe)

it's a little bulkier... but i'm getting used to it.

i used the template for the junior pad, but put it together like the pantiliner... made an insert... added some ric-rak to the pad and tada!

i'm so happy!

oh okay that makes a little more sense now....

different fabrics have been mentioned for so many different things... i'm having a hard time sorting out in my head what purpose they are serving!

t-shirts? are they usually used as and extra layer for absorbing or for like the top, next-to-you layer?


again, sry about all the questions


haha.... "firecrotch" is an awesome term

if one has no wool sweater to felt, what would a good absorption fabric be?


i hate the fact that we JUST got rid of a few wool sweaters/sweater vests that my dad had and never wore....


i know people mentioned using t-shirts for something, but i was confused as to what....



as far as fleece goes... is it more for absorption or waterproofness?

sorry about so many questions... somewhere along the line i got confused!

okay.... i FINALLY got through all the pages! *woot*

i STILL have a couple questions... but i think they can be answered with this suggestion.... can someone post a list of... "suggested fabrics" for the different layers??? you know... the close to you layer, one for absorption, waterproof, etc.....

i don't have fleece or anything... i have some large leftovers of 100% cotton (though, it's not flannel), and a bunch of t-shirts.... but i dont understand what one uses the t-shirts for?

the crimson tide came in yesterday.... and the disposable products are irritating me (maybe getting back at me for reading this thread?? they never used to bother me....) and i am completely miserable... so looking for fabrics around the house i can use..... unless i can convince my dad to buy me some fabric at walmart....


aaaaaand today is one of the worst days of the week!! but i am determined to not use tampons now....

my friend is really political and wants to be the president of the U.S., so maybe also a stuffed donkey with a cape? or is that way too cheesy?

that's awesome... just make sure you get the right party.....


or purposely get the wrong one?  Huh

is the middle skirt a circle skirt or.... ?

Well, kind of, But then I messed up and cut the inner circle far to big, and the bottom was more of an oval, ya know? Anyways, yes it's the same idea as a circle skirt.

totally been there, haha..... i had to have my mom fix it because it was a costume for the spring musical

haha.... yes. my boyfriend loves pirates... supposedly one day i'm going to make him pants to go with these... i looked on a pirate pattern (i think it was a mccall's one) and it looks like for pirate pants they just do like baggy elastic-waisted pants, and tucking them in boots is what makes them poofy at the bottom, so that shouldn't be too hard.....


but my next project for him is making an outfit for him and his best friend... they're going to start taking martial arts and want me to make something, so i am...
